Gertrude Wishnick Dubrovsky, 1926 - 2012

Gertrude Wishnick Dubrovsky’s parents immigrated to the United States from Poland around the turn of the last century. Early in their marriage, they made an unsuccessful try at farming and then operated a hand laundry on New York’s Lower East Side. With the help of a land grant from Jewish charities set up for that purpose, they tried again, joining a community of Jewish farmers in Farmingdale, NJ.

Federation of Jewish Farmers of America Convention Booklet, October 1909

jewish_farmers_of_america_agricultural_fair.jpg

A convention booklet for the First Annual Convention of The Federation of Jewish Farmers of America held in October 1909. The seal depicts a plow used by pushing, usually pulled by a horse. The Federation of Jewish Farmers was formed in 1909 as a union of thirteen existing associations of Jewish farmers. In its first year, the organization held an agricultural fair during the week-long fall harvest holiday of Sukkot. In later years, the annual conventions offered farmers an opportunity to exhibit their products, and they continued to take place during Sukkot. The federation also gave Jewish farmers more purchasing power, starting a bureau to give liberal credit to farmers who needed more help, and offering good prices on seeds and farming implements to those who needed them.
